Our training video series explores topics in brooding, record keeping, poultry housing, and nutrition.
The World Poultry Foundation has developed this Brooding Manual to assist in the proper care and production of healthy dual-purpose chicks. This training manual has been developed to guide and assist in the proper management and care for flock of day-old chicks. It has been formatted in Chapter form to make navigation of the manual user-friendly. Each chapter is designated for a specific management category, although there will be some overlap among the chapters.
The World Poultry Foundation sponsored a multi-year hatchery improvement program for small independent owners in the northern region of Vietnam. Through the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), seminars and workshops are conducted on hatchery biosecurity, construction, efficiency, and genetics. As a part of this initiative, the FAO (through WPF funding) has developed a comprehensive training manual that is available to all producers. Currently the training manual is in English and Vietnamese, with additional language translations being evaluated.
The World Poultry Foundation prepared this set of worksheets to help manage a poultry house. The worksheets cover topics such as poultry house capacity, weighing chicks, crop fill and properly locating thermometers.
The World Poultry Foundation developed this collection of checklists to help manage poutlry houses, with helpful lists covering chick arrival, weighing your chicks, morning & evening recommended routines, feed, vaccinations and biosecurity.
Thank you to Silverlands for their support in creating the videos.
Coming Late 2022: The FeedMix App
Feed quality and access in the rural areas is a challenge for farmers and producers in the developing countries. Due to this, many producers blend their own feed from locally available feedstuffs for their livestock. This presents a problem, not on in formulation accuracy for the nutritional needs for their locally produced poultry, but also in the use of optimal ingredients for poultry diets.
Recognizing this challenge, the World Poultry Foundation funded the development of a Feed App through partnership with the University of Georgia. This feed App (FeedMix), which will be available at no cost from App sites, allows the farmer to simply tick boxes of available feedstuffs (maize, cassava, etc.) and the type of birds being grown, and it will calculate a basic diet.
